Lil Wayne says he's OK.

The multiplatinum rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Friday and reps confirmed he was "recovering."  The rapper tweeted to his fans: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love."

A person close to the superstar's camp who asked for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter confirmed to The Associated Press that Lil Wayne had a seizure. He has a history of seizures in recent years that have led to previous hospital visits.

The 30-year-old New Orleans native, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is one of the biggest stars of not only his genre but in all music. He's due to release his 10th album, "I Am Not a Human Being," on March 26.
